Friday is my last day working at my current school as a lead helper in the afterschool program. Next week I move on to a different school with different students. I am going to have to relearn everything about my job again, relearn the ins and outs of each of the kids, and become the person in charge (which I am SO NERVOUS about). I am the one who has always followed a leader. I always take orders and do what I'm told. Never have I been the one to decide schedules, have a helper under me whom I direct according to what I want to do.
What I'll miss the most are the relationships I've built at my current job. I absolutely love my coworkers and we've become very good friends. I adore my students (even the more challenging ones). We announced to them today that this was my last week and some of them cried...ahh seriously it broke my heart. One little dear girl (a first grader) told me in tears that I was her only best friend and that she wished I were a kid so I could stay and play with her.
I know I am on to better things for my future, but I'm so COMFORTABLE where I am right now. I know my expectations, I'm good at what I'm doing and I enjoy doing it. I hope that this new opportunity will be one I can love and excel at just as much. I need to realize that comfort isn't always a good thing. If I just stayed comfortable forever I may never grow or change at all, and that isn't what I want.
I'm so thankful to God for granting me all of the wonderful opportunities throughout the past few years. He was carefully orchestrating my placement at this current school to build the relationships I needed which brought me to the place I am now. All along I just needed a bit of trust in Him!
Enough of the sappiness though :) I hope you are enjoying your week! I can't wait to see my family oh so soon!
